How does this not make you smile?
For those of you that don’t know, the Scripture Union boys in Peru are given the name girasoles, which is Spanish for sunflower. They live in the Casa Girasoles and are part of the Programa Girasoles. The idea behind the name Girasoles is that like a real sunflower follows the sun during the day, these boys will follow the Son throughout their lives. To those of us who live in a culture where calling a boy a flower name sounds silly, these boys take pride in their name.
